Her skin is healthy too - no problems at all. We feed mostly raw and avoid
over-vaccinating, so hopefully she won't have any allergic issues.
What we are the most thrilled about, though, is her personality. She is beyond
delightful - happy, bouncy, playful, humble, well behaved, tolerant, loves everyone,
very waggy and sharp as a whip - her vocabulary of words and phrases exceeded 80
by age 11 months. She knows to grumble, not bark, to be let in. She
can find all of her family members and toys by name. She sits, lies down,
stays, shakes hands, waves, comes, plays hide and seek, does yoga (downward dog!),
fetches toys, leaves objects, drops objects, settles down, waits in front of her
dinner bowl, cuddles, goes to bed when told and only barks when something seems
important. We feel as though we've been blessed with the perfect child!
We did put a lot of time and effort into training and raising her, I should point
out; this did not happen by accident. However, we do feel that a strong foundation
was there in her breeding, as well as in the care taken by the breeders in her first
weeks of life. Bonnie has both the gentle charm of the Golden Retriever and
the spark and bounce of the Poodle. She really is an absolute delight.
